Stressless Mayfair Chair Large and Ottoman, Leather
by Ekornes Stressless

At A Glance:
The Mayfair Stressless Chair is named after a smaller part of London, right in the center. It's larger in a lot of ways though - larger when it comes to size, height, and width, and larger when it comes to high end comfort. This is the one of the most popular large chairs in the Stressless stable, as it provides all the comfort of the traditional Ekornes product in a package that's very visually appealing.

The Mayfair Chair Large is part of the Mayfair Chair Collection. Mayfair Large is the largest of the three recliners; also available are the Mayfair Small and the Mayfair Medium.

What's To Like:
The recline function (the Glide System) reacts to shifts in your body weight. This means you never have to hold tension in your body, like you would in many other recliners. Your head, neck, and shoulders are supported well by the Stressless Mayfair Chair's headrest. The headrest moves with the chair to keep your head supported in a reading position with your neck muscles relaxed. As an alternative, you can drop the headrest if you'd like to lie almost fully flat. The Plus system within the chair controls lumbar region support, so that whenever you need it, the chair moves to support your lower back. And all that's not even getting into the way the chair looks! It's refined-looking, like it belongs in the home of someone who appreciates the finer things - like you do.

What's Not to Like:
We're not going to be able to knock this recliner's comfort. It's straight-up luxurious. So it's all a matter of taste at this point. If you don't like its look, then that's what's not to like. We don't think that the price tag is an issue here because of the incredible value a Stressless recliner is in terms of comfort and durability.

The Bottom Line:
With a striking combination of comfort, function, and balanced good looks, the Stressless Mayfair Chair is the direct result of more than 35 years of refining what Ekornes has preached all along. Slightly contemporary in its overall design, the wood frame and plush upholstery are reminders of the Stressless Mayfair Chair's luxurious quality.

Ekornes introduced the Stressless chair in 1971, meticulously developing and designing the chair to provide your body with the ultimate in comfort and support while sitting upright or reclined. This revolutionary design has made Stressless the ultimate recliner for the past 35 years.

The Stressless Mayfair Chair Large was formerly known as the Kensington Chair.

Features:

  • Chair dimensions: 40.5" h x 35.5" w x 30.25" d
  • Ottoman dimensions: 15" h x 21.75" w x 15.25" d
  • Seat height: 16.5" h
  • Stressless Glide System: allows you to adjust the glide setting so you can automatically shift to any seating position by simply using your body weight.
  • Plus System: automatically provides correct support for your head and lumbar area in all positions. The lower back support adjusts in parallel with the headrest, so you can enjoy perfect support, whether you are sitting in an upright or reclining position.
  • ErgoAdapt: seat tilts down automatically the moment you sit down, providing the most comfortable sitting angle. If you prefer to lie down, the seat elevates to the completely flat position.
  • Upholstered in your choice of leather or fabric
  • Cushioned with two layers of foam
  • Glide system within the chair is made of sturdy steel
  • Strong, high-quality bent plywood base swivels and provides excellent stability

Optional Swing Table

The Stressless Swing Table is a round side table that attaches to the side of most Stressless recliners.

Designed with convenience and comfort in mind, the Swing Table is roomy enough for a number of items you'd normally keep on your end table, such as drinks, books, or remote controls. There's no better way to keep these items within arm's reach while staying relaxed. The Swing Table is also a great way to save space, as it can eliminate the need for an end table next to your recliner.

Available in 7 wood finishes, the Swing Table is compatible with most Stressless recliners.

        What is the best care and maintenance for the Paloma leather?
        Asked on 7/10/2014 by Steve from Florida

        • Smart Furniture Staff Reviewer

          A:

          Here are some great tips on caring for any Stressless leather, including Paloma:

          -Leather has limited elasticity. This means that when stretched, it does not completely return to its original shape. Therefore, when leather furniture is used more or less intensively, the leather may become looser over time.
          -Leather like any other natural material can fade when exposed to direct sunlight over a long period of time. Royalin, being one of our more natural leathers, is being particularly sun sensitive. Therefore to minimise fading, avoid placing your furniture in direct sunlight.
          -To maintain the surface properties of the leather, we recommend that you keep a minimum distance of 30cm between your furniture and any source of heat.
          -Leather is not resistant to animals. Do not allow pets on your leather furniture. Their claws may scratch the leather which can lead to an expensive repair. Their saliva is acidic and may also attack the leather finish.
          -In order to avoid stubborn stains protect your leather when using household chemicals e.g., (most) domestic detergents such as window cleaners, bleach and finger nail polish, nail polish remover, glue, shoe polish, paint, corrosive materials. Avoid domestic detergents and ALL products containing solvents and oils, as they may destroy your leather surface. Do not use any traditional household products to remove stubborn stains. Many of these are harsh and cannot be guaranteed safe for use on leather. Do not use a steamer to clean the leather.
          -Certain cosmetics and body care products contain solvents and oils. These products are not beneficial to leather, as they may weaken the leather finish over time. Avoid using your leather furniture with wet hair or with freshly applied hair care products or cosmetics. To avoid build-up of these products, please clean regularly the leather as described.
          -All leathers last longer and look and perform better when preventive maintenance is practiced.
          -Maintain surface appearance and texture by gently wiping your leather once a week with a clean dry cloth or vacuum with a soft brush. This will remove dust.
